My wife & I & our 9 year old daughter may be coming to the Leander/Austin area in October to visit for about 4 days.
We will be driving if we come so we'll have a car to get around.
Looking for recommendations of things that are a must do or a must see if in the area and things that would likely interest a 9 year old girl.
I've seen that a kayak tour near downtown Austin where you ultimately arrive at bats that hang out under a bridge seems to be popular.
I've also read where downtown Austin is popular, too.
We would probably take a day trip or two to San Antonio while there and we generally know what there is to do/see in San Antonio, so we are good there.
We have been to/through Austin before but really only stopped there for a few hours to visit with family, so we don't have much first hand knowledge about the city otherwise.
Also, recommendations of specific areas of town that are popular areas to stay in hotel-wise?
Many thanks in advance for any recommendations / suggestions.
